Hail Atlantis!

I was just going through the newest solicitations again, and I noticed this. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about it.

Looks interesting, though I wish there were some preview art. I'm not sure about these new characters--the Poet? The Physician? They're really running out of names for these so-called gods in the DCU.

This may be the first time I have seen a comic solicitation based upon an old Donovan song.

I think I'm one of the few people who actually LOVE Aquaman. So, this maxi-series sounds really interesting to me and will most likely go on my pull list. Thanks for the heads up!

Before you go confusing your shop owner, Loren, you might want to look at this. I guess I ought to add a "Humor" tag to this post.

Just glad that I'm not the only one who heard Donovan's voice saying "the Poet" and "the Physician" when i read that.
